    According to Peugeot, the new automatic shifter allows standard driving modes to be selected such as Reverse (R), Neutral (N), and Drive (D).

    Internal combustion engine models of the 208 and 2008 will have a Manual (M) button which allows drivers to manually select the gear engaged using the paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. On the other hand, EV variants, such as the e-208 and e-2008, feature a Brake (B) button which activates regenerative braking that increases energy recovery during deceleration.

    All 208 and 2008 versions equipped with this new control feature an electrically-operated parking brake, which combines space-saving with comfort and peace of mind in everyday driving.
